Over the weekend, Bill Llewellin conducted another "Bike-N-Shoot" event, which involves mountain bike riding and pistol shooting. Competitors race around a 2 1/2 mile loop, and then shoot five shots at five targets. For each target they miss, they must ride a penalty lap of about 150 yards. They do this 3 times, for a total of about 7 1/2 miles of bike riding and 15 shots.
